Each older adult patient at Caron is assigned a multidisciplinary treatment team, made up of experienced, dedicated professionals such as:
- licensed psychologists and psychiatrists
- certified and master-level addiction counselors
- American Board of Addiction Medicine -certified medical doctors
- certified nutritionists
- physical therapists and health and wellness experts
- spiritual leaders
The team will initially perform several different evaluations of the patient and his or her family to evaluate health status, diagnose substance abuse and co-occurring disorders. Significant medical issues—like chronic pain, diabetes or cardiac problems—are taken into account in the patient’s individualized treatment plan. The team then designs an individual and integrated treatment plan, which is continuously monitored and updated according to the patient’s progress.
Older adults stay in rehab for varying lengths of time. It’s important to keep an open mind regarding length of stay, as our ultimate goal is to help each person make a full recovery—mentally, physically, emotionally and spiritually. Learn more about evaluations and treatment plans.
